  • Global News published this video item, entitled “Israel-Gaza conflict: Biden finally join calls for ceasefire as civilian death toll rises” – below is their description.

    International calls are growing for a ceasefire to halt the escalating Israel-Hamas conflict. Over 200 people have now died in the conflict, with a vast majority of the fatalities coming in Gaza. But despite mounting global pressure, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promises to continue the bombardment campaign on Hamas, as Palestinian militant groups shows no plans of relenting their rocket attacks either. As Eric Sorensen reports, the death toll is rising as civilians continue to get caught in the crossfire.

    Amid the worsening conflict, U.S. President Joe Biden is now also joining the calls for a ceasefire, after he expressed it to Netanyahu himself during a call. The U.S. has usually maintained its position that Israel has a right to defend itself from Hamas’ attacks. But as Jackson Proskow reports, Biden’s initial reluctance was at odds with a growing number of Americans, including members of his own party, who want to see an end to the violence.
